Throughout the second half of Season 3 we see Henry playing the video game Diablo III, an interesting choice given the strong good vs. evil plot in this game. Emma frequently tells Henry to see if he can't "Beat level 23" however, Diablo III does not have this kind of level system. It's a story and takes place in 4 Acts. You can level your character, but she should then say "go level you character, see if you can get to 24." See more »

What a wonderful start
17 March 2014 | by aminaamrinSee all my reviews

This was one of the best episode of this wonderful show. From the very beginning it was filled with twists and turns. It was definitely a good setup for the rest of the season. There were many secrets and many revelations. The special effects are worth mentioning. The flying monkeys were a treat to watch. This new curse seems interesting. The best twist was Whalsh's reality. Hook was fun and Emma was cool. Regina's pain for Henry was heart wrenching. The episode was first paced and every details were taken in to account. The episode was a good mix of drama, tragedy, comedy and romance. If you missed it, then you definitely missed a brilliant episode.
